Great Summertime location

If you want a good burger try Hackney's. In addition they have good sandwiches too....but the best is the onion ring loaf but ask for it extra crispy. Extra Crispy makes it less greasy and nice and crunchy.

Been a number of years since I've been near a Hackney's. The onion brick is the draw for sure...and you can get different sizes...the 1/4 was perfect to share with one more. Try the inside out burger...grilled to perfection and filled with great taste. They do fries fairly crisp...so ask your server for not so crispy if you prefer them... More

We had a large group here (30+) and everyone had a good time. The food was great, service friendly, and the toughest critics (i.e. the kids) gave it all a thumbs up (the good desserts might have helped).

If you need a burger, fries and the greasiest, most delicioius onion ring cake, this is your place. This is more of the family restaurant. Lots of older folks and younger families here, not the non-pilling taking cholesterol-watching crowd. Their other local on Harms is more the drinking bar crowd. These guys know how to do burgers and use good... More

We rolled into Hackney's with a large chunk of our family in tow...all 28 of them, with nearly half of that number hungry teenagers looking for a good meal. Mission accomplished. The folks at Hackney's didn't bat an eye at the large number of people, they just set up a couple of large tables and it was all good. Our... More

I sometimes am queried by friends and co-workers about why I Iike eating at Hackney's in spite of it's great reputation for traditionally (high calorie/fat content burgers), onion rings and fries. The answer is that Hackney's on Lake manages to have a highly inclusive menu serving great traditional American-Irish pub food but includes lower calorie meals including veggie burgers, salads...

My friend and I came in from the far northwest (Woodstock, IL) and while we had some time to kill decided to eat at Hackney's. It had been 20 years or more for me, and 10 some for her. The atmosphere hasn't changed (to my delight), warm woody and like being in someone's library. The servers are friendly and helpful.... More

There are some great menu options at Hackney's, and I find that any of the burgers are done just right and there is nothing like eating a burger and a loaf of onions on the patio in front. The nice thing is that you can get an amount of onions that is manageable as they have three different sizes. This... More
